STUDY: Male-Female Marriage Best for Children

In a recent article on the blog, The Public Discourse, it was stated, “But as Ana Samuel explains in her recent Public Discourse essay, the findings of the New Family Structures Study led by Professor Mark Regnerus at the University of Texas (partly supported by a grant from the Witherspoon Institute, and published by Regnerus in the latest issue of Social Science Research), using data that for the first time meet the highest standards for research in social science, make it impossible to continue making … claims [that social science evidence indicates that having gay or lesbian parents makes ‘no difference’] with any real credibility.”

From the conclusion of the study:

. . .the NFSS also clearly reveals that children appear most apt to succeed well as adults—on multiple counts and across a variety of domains—when they spend their entire childhood with their married mother and father, and especially when the parents remain married to the present day.
